The Wayback Machine is also used by attorneys and law enforcement agencies and has proven itself to be an invaluable tool for tracking changes to web scammer web sites.


It is impossible to cover all of the intuitive angles used by web scammers in this chapter. This information has been offered as a high level overview of the tools, techniques and types of victims that are targeted by web scammers.  The main points of this chapter include:

  • eCommerce is a multi-billion dollar industry and it is growing every year.

  • Cheap connectivity and inexpensive computers are allowing more and more people onto the Internet.

  • Web scammers take advantage of loose international laws to prey with impunity upon victims in the USA.

  • Small third-world nations are a major origin of web scams.

  • Unless the loss exceeds $10,000, law enforcement agencies will rarely actively pursue the criminals.

  • Online auction fraud is one of the most common scams and both buyers and sellers can become victims.

The next Chapter will examine identity theft and see how it has become a major problem on the Internet.
